Meet the Author

Jackson, Mississippi, interior decorator Laurie Smith is one of the two original designers on TLC's Trading Spaces and a favorite among fans. Laurie, who trained at the School of Design in New York City, describes herself as "elegant, but eclectic." She uses color and vibrancy to create new spaces and always does so with style, grace�and sometimes a bit of perspiration! Laurie is known as the style mix-master, combing elements of classic and contemporary styles. She loves bold and vivid colors and cannot resist the temptation of fine, exquisite fabrics. Using her fame from Trading Spaces as a springboard, Laurie has branched out into the world of design, branding her style and eye for design into various lines of products. She recently launched her own line of fabrics sold exclusively through Hancock Fabrics and is planning a secondary line of fabrics for juveniles in 2006. She also serves as a spokesperson for Lane Home Furnishings. Laurie lives in Jackson, with her husband, Brad, and her son, Gibson Witherspoon.

Laurie Smith's Discovering Home is great! I was not familiar with her tv program originally, however, I am in the middle of remodeling and her tips are extremely helpful when making big furniture purchases and desiding one's own style pattern. This was a real eye opener and extremely easy to read. Her tips are easy to apply to any budget!
